College Basketball Picks – UNLV Runnin’ Rebels to Get Back On Track against Boise State Broncos
Written by North Shore Sports, Inc.
Here at Bookmaker Sportsbook, we’re always keeping a close eye on the hardwood, and this week, we’re set to make our college basketball picks for Wednesday’s showdown in the Mountain West, as the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels take on the Boise State Broncos.
On Wednesday, February 22nd at 10:00 ET, the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels (22-6, 10-14 ATS) and Boise State Broncos (13-12, 10-14 ATS) will get it on at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, NV. Here at Bookmaker Sportsbook, our college basketball picks for this duel are all set! The telecast will be shown nationally on the CBS College Sports Network.
The last time we saw the Runnin’ Rebels in action, they had no chance of making for great college basketball betting picks against the New Mexico Lobos in “The Pit.” It was their second straight outright defeat and their fourth straight from an ATS standpoint, and all of a sudden, though they are still ranked in the Top 25, they are clearly one more bad week away from all of a sudden perhaps being on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament.
That being said, this is a much different challenge than the one they were faced with last weekend. Boise State is just a game above .500 this year, and it hasn’t had a great run of it in the MWC, going just 3-7 SU.
However, if you made your college basketball gambling picks on the Broncos of late, you know that this is a team that has won three in a row and is starting to at least make a bit of noise as we approach the Mountain West Tournament. That being said, Boise State knocked off the Air Force Falcons, Colorado State Rams, and TCU Horned Frogs, and now, it has to take on the four best teams in the conference with three of the four coming on the road.
What really have us puzzled right now are the inconsistencies of the UNLV offense. This is a team that was averaging over 80 points per game until the start of February, and since that point, it has played three games in which it scored 66 points or fewer. The 45-point effort in the loss to New Mexico was shocking to say the least, and if the team puts forth a sluggish effort like that again, it might not be all that smart to continue making college basketball wagering picks on it.
College Basketball Betting Pick – Again, there’s a big difference between hosting Boise State and traveling to New Mexico. The Rebels, who are a terrible ATS road team at just 1-9, are a solid 7-4 here at the T&M, including posting an upset of the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Broncos are only 3-6 ATS on the road, and though they are playing better ball, this is a challenge that is just far beyond them. We think that UNLV’s offense gets going in a big time way on Wednesday night to help alleviate some of the concern that’s developed in the desert.
Making college basketball picks is often difficult, especially if you don’t have the right sportsbook on your side to give you the best prices.
